R&D collaboration agreements: how to deal with IP

26 September 2018

Technology continues to expand into new areas as manufacturing processes are re-imagined and everyday items become connected. Consequently businesses in all sectors are increasingly looking to collaborate with other parties in order to develop next generation products and services. In entering into such arrangements it is crucial that you obtain the necessary rights to exploit the newly created technology, whilst protecting your background rights and the confidentiality of any core know-how.

In this webinar, Selina Hinchliffe and Nick Smee introduce you to some of the key questions to ask when first considering collaboration, plus the various IP ownership and licensing options that you need to contemplate.

Follow our LinkedIn Technology showcase page where you’ll find lots of useful resources and information aimed at the technology sector.
